2012 TOSCOLO CHIANTI
"Amazing quality for a simple Chianti. Beautiful character of sliced ripe strawberries and lemons follow through to a full body, with bright acidity and a silky finish. Firm silky tannins come through. Give it a little more time to come together. Shows the excellent quality of the vintage. Better in 2013." James Suckling 90 points (2011 vintage)
|Wine maker notes
|Moderate ageing in oak (6 months) does not stifle the freshness and fragrance of this delightful red.
Brilliant ruby color, elegant nose of berry fruit, violets and iris, soft, silky-textured palate with abundant fruit, good body, intensity and balance.
